4/4 Troubadour (The Incomplete Image)

This song is by Michelle Shocked and appears on the album The Texas Campfire Tapes (1986).

Did I tell you the story of the 4/4 troubadour
The traveling tramp
The barefoot bum?
Did I tell you the story of the carefree gypsy
The hitching hobo
The rich man's son?

Last seen hitching down the Whitehorse Highway
Picking on a guitar
Waiting on a ride
He's been running on steam since he was sixteen
Now the daddy wants to see the boy
Before he dies

Did I tell you the story of the poor man's daughter
Or the poor man's lover
Or the poor man's ward?
Did I tell you the story of the poor man's hired hand?
She keeps his house for her room and board

Last seen hitching at the edge of town
She had a sign that said
'Anywhere But Here'
Now she never found a job where she was not fired
But she never found a town where she was not hired

That's all
